I'm a PAL. Published and Listed, that is. With the release of Theodore the Tree last month, I now have PAL status at SCBWI. The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, for those of you who don't know. All these acronyms! I didn't even know what PAL stood for until a couple of months ago! I finally had to ask someone, because I kept seeing and hearing the term, but there was never an explanation for what it meant, everyone just seemed to know!
There is a certain criteria that has to met to qualify, no self-published books, etc., So now we know, PAL means Published and Listed and I'm so thrilled to be a PAL!
